How can I get the second line (continuation of the first line) of a bullet to line up with the text and not the bullet?

I do not see it in the styles option of the bullets.

Thanks in advance

What application are you using?

In Publisher, just use the Bullet 1 paragraph style and it will happen automatically.

For Photo or Designer, you would need to adjust the first line indent and left-indent using the Paragraph studio panel. Set the left-indent to a value like .25 in, then set the first-line indent to 0.

Well, it does this autom. in Publisher, right. But the bullets are 6mm away. In my case that is too far. And as first line indent is not able to go negative values - I see not how to adjust this. Or is there another way?

I may have to specify: When I change left intend, which was autom. set at 6mm, it does not change the first line that starts with the bullet. That one still stays at 6mm.

If you have already typed text, then you'll need to change the paragraph style itself, or you'll need to have that text selected if you make the change via one of the studio panels.
